Home Sick School Games

Last week was all about getting outside and enjoying winter and the unique activities it brings.  We even made an appearance on our local lifestyle show with our best-of winter list. See here.

The universe is a funny thing because this week we were all stuck-in and SICK!  We’ve been fevering and coughing up a storm.  We’ve been home from school, work and any extra-curricular activities.

After watching as much TV and movies as any humans should, we’ve created a list of good old school games activities to do on a sick day.  Lucky for us we got some fun little vintage old school games for Christmas that helped us pass the time while being sick.  See our list of fun games and links to where you can get them.

1. Hula-hooping

Hula-hooping where can I buy a hoolahoop? Did you forget how much fun it was to hula-hoop?  We bought these nifty hoops at Wal-Mart for $5.  We’ve been giving them as birthday gifts when the kids get invited to neighborhood parties.  The kids love the challenge and love to hula multiple hoops.  Endless hours of fun and a sneaky way to get some exercise in.

I’m an early thirties mother of two and wife to a husband who is pretty much the wind beneath my wings (and the money behind my debit card). I enjoy writing and laughing at the things I write. After graduating from Weber State University I pursued a joint career in full-time mothering and part-time writing. I discovered a passion for learning and writing about community and women’s issues. Besides writing, I enjoy doing things I’m not sure I can do. Some things I’ve failed at. Others I have accomplished. Other interesting things about me…I’m very short. I survived being sprayed by a skunk. I love my pet hibiscus flowering plant almost as much as my human children. I stalk celebrities, but not for a living. I swim surprisingly fast.
